An exhibition of recent work by Artist-members and Trustees, past and present, of the Art in Perpetuity Trust to celebrate the Charity’s twentieth anniversary of nurturing, supporting and exhibiting fine art from its studio and gallery complex in Deptford, South East London.

About

This exhibition celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Art in Perpetuity Trust, showcasing the diverse work of its members - artists and trustees, past and present.  A.P.T has long been at the centre of cultural life in Deptford and has developed a strong reputation for the quality of its gallery shows and the strength of its studio identity. 

The show is an eclectic and vibrant mix of medium and style with every member contributing important pieces that provide a fascinating insight into the lineage of A.P.T.

If there is a theme it is an acknowledgement and celebration of  the spirit of A.P.T, embodied both in the place and the remarkable commitment of its members. Since its inception as a charity in 1995, A.P.T has provided a unique environment in which many practices have flourished. The principles and protocols developed by the A.P.T artists themselves over the years coupled with the stability and security of tenure of the place itself makes for a fascinating microcosm of unfolding history.

This show is a perfect opportunity to speculate on connecting threads between members, and perhaps reflect in general on how the creative dynamic of an artists’ collective is sustained.
